ESMO 2012 Congress: A path for medical oncology innovations
Date:6/13/2012

"The oncology field is going to explode within the next five years and in ten years from now oncology will be drastically different from what it is today: what we are going to see at ESMO 2012 in Vienna will give a broad overview of how new technologies can improve the tailoring of cancer therapies for the benefit of our patients." --Martine Piccart, ESMO and ESMO 2012 Congress President

More than 17,000 participants from over 120 different countries are coming to Vienna for the 37th congress of the European Society for Medical Oncology, including oncology professionals, healthcare policy makers, patient groups, pharmaceutical industry (85 exhibitors), cancer foundations and representatives of international media.

Over 200 program hours with 140 sessions, of which 110 presenting scientific results on cancer research progress in 2012, including late-breaking abstracts on gastrointestinal tumors, lung cancer, genitourinary tumors, breast cancer, gynecological cancers. Over 300 international experts will share best knowledge in cancer research, treatment and patient care.

Congress Program Highlights

  • More than 2,200 abstracts submitted, including 44 late-breaking abstracts, possibly foreshadowing important changes in clinical practice More details will be available at the end of July

  • Genomics opening new doors in the development of cancer treatments Read the interview with Dr Martine Piccart, ESMO President http://www.esmo.org/events/vienna-2012-congress/program/committe-member-erika-martinelli.html

  • Personalized medicine: the importance of patient selection in treatment efficacy from the early phases of drug development

  • Issues in the management of cancer in young women

  • Cancer prevention and screening: evidence-based answers to critical qu
